Going deaf: How does NF2 change your life?
Peter Burton joins the podcast today to discuss how neurofibromatosis type 2 has changed his life. Peter openly shares his advice for someone going deaf as he talks about what happens when you go deaf. This honest conversation covers questions such as should you disclose you are deaf on a job applications, deaf accommodations at work, and what tools help the deaf communicate with the hearing.
Peter encourages listeners to try to communicate with those who are going deaf by learning some simple ASL signs to start the conversation and then shares his favorite app he uses, Live Transcribe. In fact, it was through this app that he and Tonya were first able to communicate when they met.
